Audio: Singing Muni Driver Serenades 27-Bryant Passengers

We’ve heard about him for years. Here’s some audio from the 71-Haight/Noriega that we posted via Tenderloin Geographic Society back in early 2011.

Then, last week, @funtobehad told us she heard the singing Muni driver on the 27-Bryant crooning away. She sent the video above. Anyone know the story on this guy? He gets radness points for saying the transfer lines.

100 Muni StoriesA Broadway-ready Muni driver gets creative with the announcements:

@bhautikj: The driver on the 27-Bryant is theatrically singing the names of connecting lines. Awesome!

Is it the same singing Muni driver from last year? When he’s bigtime famous, we can say we knew him when.

Sorry, M.R.F.K.A.M. (Muni rider formerly known as Michael). Guess it wasn’t your lucky day.

What do YOU think of your Muni line? Write your wittiest, most entertaining review of a Muni line on the Muni Google Places page. We have five prizes to give out to the funniest reviews, like this one that we just saw on the Muni Google Places page:

“The 27-Bryant is an amazemagasmic 5-star experience. For a paltry $2 cover charge you get non-stop entertainment for your many-stop trip from the TL crazies to the outer Mission crazies. Live poultry? Done! Mysterious smells and ownerless toddlers? Done! Ranting dude in a wheelchair going only 2 stops and then after deboarding gets up and walks around thanks to the MIRACLE OF MUNI? Done! Muni needs to have a full bar in the back of every bus, and then I’ll never leave.”

Ah, the miracle of Muni. You heard it here first.
